It takes a special type of person to be a truly great sniper, with grit, gumption, patience, and a steady aim when weeing into beetles. Should you think yourself gifted in these ways, you can now test your mettle in a demo for Rebellion's reboot-er-make Sniper Elite V2, which hit consoles today.

The demo is available now on the Xbox Live Marketplace and arrived in today's PlayStation Store update. The PC demo, however, won't arrive until later this month.

You'll get to sneak through the streets of Schöneberg to lay a booby-trap for an armored convoy, all to grab documents leading to a V2 factory. It's a "specially prepared" sequence from a mission early in Sniper Elite V2, so don't worry too much if you haven't got that 'weeing in bottles' thing down pat yet.

Sniper Elite V2 launches on May 1. If you can't play the demo just yet, poor PC gamer, you can always drown your woes in our recent preview.

      at least PC is getting a demo with this one, just hopefully its a true representation of the game, unlike bulletstorm.

      I like the demo it reminds me of the original Sniper Elite, but with a price tag of $49 I might wait awhile.

      I'm so sick of rechargeable health. Pretty much makes you god mode in a game like this where you can just pop out of cover snipe then go back in cover and let your wounds heal in like 2 seconds. No sense of survival like in the first game or need for stealth because of it. Your mistakes never make a difference and it makes the game stale.
